As I type these words, at around 8:30 a.m., some fine Orioles fans have been at Pickles Pub, drinking alcohol, for nearly three hours.
The famous gathering spot near Camden Yards offered $2 Miller Lites and a free breakfast buffet from 6-9 a.m. in honor of the day’s festivities. People seemed to appreciate that offer. The above photo was taken around 6 a.m. Kind of on the early side for a Miller Lite, in some circles.

Still hours to go, people. Pace yourselves.
